We have hundreds of writing prompts / story starters for kids for nearly every occasion and season. Here’s two brand new sets of writing worksheets to help your students discuss the priorities and benefits of taking care of our environment.

Recently a disturbing video from a sea diver filming plastic pollution in the ocean near Bali went viral. We think every child should see this!
